Films: The Philadelphia Story10:30 AM
There are so many good TV shows that Kyle and I are trying to catch up on, that we have failed at watching as many movies as we would like. Five years ago, Kyle and I would have been able to give you a review of every movie in theaters, as well as have a small stack of rentals on our coffee table. It has been harder to actually get out to see a movie because of conflicting schedules and other nonsense that life throws at us, but watching movies from home is even more difficult at times. There is one really awesome rental shop a few miles away, but it is sort-of out of the way, and Netflix barely has anything.
After much hunting, I did come across this gem and it was worth the 30 minutes of sifting through movie titles. Also, JIMMY STEWART.
Tracy Samantha Lord Haven is a wealthy Philadelphia socialite, who has divorced her husband Dexter Haven two years prior, and is about to marry George Kittredge. Spy magazine wants to cover the wedding, and enlists Haven (a former employee) to introduce journalist Macaulay "Mike" Conner and photographer Liz Imbrie to the family. Tracy reluctantly agrees, even though she is swamped with wedding details, as well as keeping an eye on her teenage sister Dinah.
As the wedding gets closer, Tracy somehow finds herself drunk for the second time in her life, as well as being torn between her fiance, her ex-husband, and the reporter. A screwball/romantic comedy at its finest, with an awesome cast to top it off.
I will leave off with this one last image: Jimmy Stewart singing "Over the rainbow". Iknowright.
